I must tell you this.
My son does not really like to read. Every night its an argument and finding a book he likes to read has been difficult to say the least. However, he has been glued to the pages in reading your books. He first read Summer Sleepaway and really enjoyed it. I just purchased the two other books available on Amazon and he is totally engrossed in Escape from Sunday School.

The sweet, sweet days of summer
This is the rare book that captures the true flavor of adolescence without being patronizing to teenagers or alienating adults.

Hi Parent Forum,
I'm a nanny for a voracious reader and need book recommendations, please. She is 10, and she loves all the harry potter bookss, the warrior cats book, anything with witches, magic, adventure.
